Teaser Tuesday #31 - Highborn

Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, a bookish meme hosted weekly by Miz B, at Should Be Reading.

The latest novel from Yvonne Navarro is an award-winning Urban Fantasy novel called Highborn (The Dark Redemption Series). I've carefully picked the teaser out to give you not just an introduction to the book itself, but also an insight into our heroine's head.
That first touch, that kiss...no one knew better than Brynna how it could work on the psyche. Memory, desire, pheromones, hormones. They all played a part in how the universe went round. Birds and the bees. Demons and angels and humans.

Quick Review:
Honestly, I thought this was going to be "just" another urban fantasy. Usual tropes fell into my mind - angels, demons seeking redemption and some fighting thrown in for fun. Yvonne, the author, uses these worn themes brilliantly, but brings her own twist. 
The story rapidly got interesting as chapters progressed. I opened the first page with zero expectations, but Brynna and her entry into our world, her mishaps with the cops, and her slipping into a real existence in Chicago were all captivating. 
I'd recommend this book to all fantasy readers, and thriller fans. If you are wandering around the interwebs, looking for the next good read, here it is!
